In brief: Carpet cleaner

One exposure to Formula 409 rug cleaner causing cancer is close to zero.
Cumulative effects of that plus other toxins in the environment do raise the risk of disease. Try to avoid chemicals as much as possible by reading labels. They are even in beauty products. Peace and good health.
